TY WILLIAMS WIRES I-70 MOTORSPORTS PARK 305 NATIONALS FINALE!

Lonnie Wheatley, ODESSA, Mo. (May 28, 2022) – Ty Williams wasn’t letting another I-70 Motorsports Park 305 Sprint Car Nationals title slip from his grasp.

After leading more than half of last year’s finale before getting bogged down in traffic, the Arcadia, OK, racer capitalized on the pole starting position and wasn’t to be stopped as he led all 30 rounds to take Saturday night’s payday worth $4,700 that included $1,700 in lap money along with the $3,000 posted winner’s share atop the 4/10-mile clay oval.

After redrawing the pole position for the championship feature after a heat race win, Williams outgunned fellow front row starter Jay Russell for the point at the outset aboard the Steve Hilker Trucking/Cattletrucks.com No. 911 while Friday night preliminary winner Monty Ferriera needed just two laps to charge from sixth to second.

Williams weathered four cautions in the early going that kept him clear of lapped traffic before the final 19 laps ran off in non-stop fashion.

Williams repelled a pair of charges from Ferreira on restarts and then stretched his lead to nearly a straightaway over Ferriera and Stu Snyder, who engaged in a torrid battle for second for nearly 15 laps.

Lapped traffic proved to be no problem for Williams this time until the closing rounds when he found himself stranded behind a lapped car for several circuits. In the meantime, Ferriera and Snyder began to chop into his lead as they swapped the runner-up position numerous times.

Williams finally put the lapped car behind him in the final handful of circuits to secure the win while the battle for second finally culminated in contact exiting turn four that sent Snyder climbing and bouncing off the retaining wall.

Ferriera escaped the battle for runner-up honors while Snyder somehow saved his machine to salvage the show position.

Russell scored fourth with Trevor Grossenbacher rounding out the top five as Jon Freeman, 13th-starter Curtis Evans, Luke Cranston, Jacob Dye and John Webster completed the top ten. Webster earned a front hub assembly from Taylor Weld by earning Hard Charger honors after rallying from 18th to tenth.

A pair of the early cautions affected leading contenders with third-runner Jeremy Huish losing power after eight rounds and then Luke Cranston slowing a lap later with a cut tire while battling among the top five. While Huish’s weekend was cut short, Cranston bounced back from the tail of the field for an eighth-place finish.

Ferriera Flies to 305 Nationals Prelim Win at I-70 Motorsports Park!

Lonnie Wheatley, ODESSA, Mo. (May 27, 2022) – Monty Ferriera broke into United Rebel Sprint Series victory lane for the first time by wiring the field in Friday night’s 20-lap I-70 Motorsports Park 305 Sprint Car Nationals preliminary feature event.

Ferriera gunned into the lead from the pole position ahead of third-starter Jeremy Huish on the opening round and then fought off a serious challenge from Huish on a lap 14 restart to take the $1,000 victory aboard the Precision Brands Investments/Wrenched No. 45 Sprint Car.

“He (Huish) tried the same thing on both the initial start and then that late restart,” Ferriera explained.  “I just knew I had to hold him off.”

It was also the first win of the year for the California native turned Nebraska resident.

“I think we’ve been top five out every race this year, tonight things finally fell in place,” Ferriera commented.  “And I’ve been trying to win a United Rebel Sprint Series race for about five years, so it feels good to finally get that.”

While Ferriera gunned into the early lead, Huish gave chase all the way.  Even when lapped traffic came into play after eight laps, Ferriera kept Huish and Jacob Dye at bye until the race’s only caution flew after 14 laps when Jay Russell lost power on the frontstretch.

Huish made a bid for the point on the restart in turns one and two, but Ferriera was up to the task and pulled back ahead to lead the rest of the way.

Huish settled for runner-up honors, while a late move past Stu Snyder netted Luke Cranston the show position after apparent third-place finisher Dye fell light at the scales.

Snyder was fourth with Jon Freeman rounding out the top five as Ty Williams, Trevor Grossenbacher, Kenny Potter, Curtis Evans and Jack Potter completed the top ten.

After Dye established the fastest overall lap of 15.559 seconds in qualifying, Cranston, Cash Beeson and Ferriera each scored 8-lap heat race wins.

Chad Frewaldt’s night came to an early end after a wild ride near the end of the frontstetch in hot laps.  Frewaldt appeared healthy as he shared words with John Webster in the aftermath.

I-70 Motorsports Park’s 305 Sprint Car Nationals wraps up with Saturday night’s $3,000-to-win finale with the USRA B-Modifieds and USRA Stock Cars both battling it out in $1,000-to-win tilts.  Saturday’s racing action gets under way at 7:30.

Lonnie Wheatley, WICHITA, Kan. (May 21, 2022) – Steven Shebester prevailed in Saturday night’s 25-lap Oil Capital Racing Series vs. United Rebel Sprint Series “Civil War” main event at 81 Speedway.

After surrendering the point to Kyle Clark in traffic ten laps into the main event, the Pauls Valley, OK, native battled back to the forefront and the led the closing rounds to secure the win aboard the Riverside Salvage/CB Underground Utilities/David Grace Motorsports No. 16s Sprint Car.

Shebester set the tone early, bolting into the lead at the outset from the front row outside starting position before reaching traffic within eight rounds.

Fourth-starter Clark seized the opportunity to close in on the leader and claimed the point for several rounds before Shebester countered to recapture the lead and paced the field the rest of the way in the non-stop affair.

Clark settled for runner-up honors for the second night in a row with pole starter Sheldon Barksdale filling out the podium in third.  Whit Gastineau was fourth with Blake Edwards rounding out the top five.

Zach Blurton crossed the stripe sixth with Jordan Knight, Zach Chappell, Steven Richardson and Jake Martens completing the top ten.
